Land Rover Discovery 4 ‘Landmark’ limited editions


Land Rover will introduce the new Discovery 4 ‘Landmark’ Limited Editions in January 2011 featuring
unique Black and White color themes. The new variant brings a fresh, more contemporary sense of design to the latest Discovery 4 line-up. Both the Black and White models blend high-end interiors with bold, contemporary color schemes, giving the Discovery 4 a more upmarket look. In keeping with the core appeal of the Discovery 4, this Limited Edition offers on-road refinement to match most executive saloons, the versatility of a large people carrier and unrivalled off-road capability.

“The new Landmark Limited Edition Discovery 4 has been created to offer our customers more choice,” said Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern. “The Discovery 4 is already the ultimate all-purpose vehicle, but we’ve brought a new, bolder, more contemporary edge to the design, offering a higher level of luxury in the cabin.”

The Landmark is available in Santorini Black or Fuji White color schemes. A high-specification Taurus interior leather comes in either Ebony or – for the first time in a Discovery – Ivory. Offsetting the Grand Ivory veneer with a contrasting top stitch creates a duo-tone look, offering bold color combinations to give both versions a striking, contemporary finish.

The exterior also benefits from Santorini Black finish grille vanes, gloss black 20″ 5-spoke diamond-turned alloy wheels, privacy glass, and Satin Black extended roof rails that create a unique side silhouette.

The Landmark is powered by Land Rover’s highly efficient 3.0 litre SDV6 twin turbo diesel engine that offers a nine percent fuel economy improvement (EU combined cycle), compared to 2.7 litre engine it replaced and ten percent less CO2, re-affirming the brand’s ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability.
All variants come with Land Rover’s award-winning Terrain ResponseTM system, which optimises the vehicle set-up for virtually all on-road or off-road driving situations, with five different settings to suit different terrains.

The Land Rover Discovery first went on-sale in 1989 and since then has received over 150 awards from all over the world. The Discovery 4 has won a number of awards, including, in the UK, 4×4 Magazine’s Car of the Year and the Scottish Car of the Year and, internationally, the Best 4×4 for Spain’s Car and Driver, Best Annual SUV for Autocar in China and All-Round SUV of the Year for Bloomberg’s USA.

The Discovery 4 Limited Editions will go on-sale from in the UK from January 2011, priced at £46,945 OTR.
